You Are That Vast Thing You See with Great Telescopes (pod 18)

Jul 15, 2022

Joy Lab Podcast (episode 18)

Did you catch the first set of images released from the Webb telescope? Did you feel a bit of awe? And if you listened to last episode (#17) you may have thought... "Hey! That's me in those images!" Yes! That might sound a bit wild, but it's true. Aimee is here to chat a bit about the power of seeing yourself in those images. Seeing your mystery, your magic, your power. In fact, the most incredible thing that you can discover might just be within. Telescopes optional.


Key Takeaways:

  • Carl Sagan: "Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known."
  • Alan Watts: “You are that vast thing that you see far, far off with great telescopes.”  
  • Let the Webb images remind you of your power, your awe.
  • Embracing your "small self" boosts your feelings of joy, generosity, wellbeing, and humility.
